If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G Series, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
My advice is that everybody has to do their own due diligence. The G Series is a good product but it isn't meet our requirements In summary, this is a very good product but there's always room for improvement. It certainly served our purposes at the time. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
My recommendation to anyone looking to use Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G Series is to read and read and read and learn from other people's experiences and basic knowledge. This is really important for everyone. On a scale of one to ten, I would give Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G Series a nine.
This is a product that I don't think needs any improvement because I don't see any challenges. I definitely recommend this solution to others. The security of this solution depends on how it is installed. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
I can't say anything about the product itself that was in need of improvement. The areas where we had issues were more along the lines with support and HDS management. For anybody who is interested in this solution, I would say that from a product standpoint, it is fine. The only problem is the support. Anytime we needed support, it was delayed. I'm not sure of the reason for this, but it just seemed like it took a long time to get things resolved. At the time we did our RFP, HDS did not have an all-flash offering. They do now, but I haven't had the opportunity to look at their all-flash products. Hopefully, it is not just all-flash thrown into a G 1500 Series because you want to build flash from the ground up. What we found during our recent RFP was that the pricing is pretty close between all-flash and HDD, so while not everybody needs the performance, if you're getting it for the same price then why wouldn't you take advantage of it? I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
I would recommend this solution. I would rate Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G Series a ten out of ten. It is a good product.

It is a very, very good solution manufactured by a good company. On a scale from one to ten, where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate these products as a ten because they do what we need them to without fail. For us they are perfect.
I would rate the solution eight out of ten.
